Video Rating: 4 / 5

UPDATE!! ** YouTube yanked my audio that included instructions… apparently I used unauthorized music at the beginning and end. I’ve subbed in some random music from their available list just so you won’t have to watch in silence – SORRY! Using the “Lil Victorian Steampunk Lad Eric” digi stamp from Tickled Pink that I colored with copic markers, I make this hanging wall art piece for my son. Its called “Explore and Conquer”. I thought of him right away when I saw this image and knew I had to make him something with it. Hope you enjoy the video and feel free to ask any questions! Have a super day! Products used: Digi stamps, copic markers, balsa wood wall hanging from dollar store, distressing, tim holtz alcohol inks and stains, Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante papers, DCWV Tattered Time
